I recently made a Jersey knit maxi skirt, using a cotton/poly blend medium-lightweight knit. I used only ballpoint needles, serged the edges with a four-thread overlock, and the seam was balanced and a normal stitch length. It looked great.
I wore it, washed it, and it was FULL of little seam holes. I’m upset. I’ve sewn with knits so many times before and have NEVER had holes before. What happened?
I am genuinely just hoping that it was a poor quality fabric. I got it at JoAnn fabrics. Can’t find anything about it on forums elsewhere. Please, let me know if you think I could do something to prevent it happening again!
